The Best Celeb Social Media Posts From The 2017 Oscars

Last night’s Oscars ceremony will no doubt go down as one of the craziest and most memorable in history. By now, you probably know how your best friend, mom, and neighbour all reacted to the wins, the performances and the shockers. But what did the celebs themselves think? Keep reading for a social media roundup of our favourite stars’ best tweets, pics and videos from the drama-filled night. And if you want to relive the night for real, you can watch the entire Oscars broadcast on the CTV website.

Hidden Figures’ Taraji P. Henson gave us a glimpse at just how glam the Oscars really are.

Justin Timberlake gave us a behind-the-scenes look at rehearsal for his big “Can’t Stop the Feeling” opening number…


…while his other half, Jessica Biel, looked as excited as we felt for the ceremony to finally begin.


Meanwhile, social media queen Chrissy Teigen adorably presented an Oscar to someone close to her heart.


And Fences star aka Best Supporting Actress winner Viola Davis shared an image of her family rooting her on before the show. So cute!


Apparently the stars are just like us. Moonlight and Hidden Figures actress (and overall superstar) Janelle Monae cheekily revealed that she was stress eating chocolate on the way to the red carpet. We feel you, girl.


On the red carpet, Ryan Seacrest managed to perfectly capture what being a third wheel feels like with just a single image.


And host Jimmy Kimmel let us know that his famous feud with Matt Damon is still as strong as ever.


Once the ceremony was up and running, presenter Hailee Steinfeld couldn’t help but reach out and try to grab that sweet, sweet Oscar trophy.


Moana voice actress Auli’i Cravalho’s stunning rendition of “How Far I’ll Go” left us speechless—and she apparently felt the same way.


Let’s be honest, the reactions those tour bus passengers had to seeing so many famous people in one room are pretty much the same reactions we’d have. Lucky for us, Keith Urban managed to get another angle of the hilarious (though lengthy) bit.


Samuel L. Jackson met Lion‘s Sunny Pawar, and it’s probably one of the best examples of cross-generational bonding we’ve ever seen.

This is who Should Have Won Best Actor tonight, Sunny Pawar of Lion! Totally Killed It!!

Brie Larson’s heartwarming picture of her and Emma Stone after Stone’s big Best Actress win is definitely #friendshipgoals.


And the award for the best #squadgoals picture goes to Ava DuVernay.


At the end of the night, Taraji embraced the fact that she’s the queen of the reaction GIF and posted a GIF of herself after the Moonlight/La La Land Best Picture debacle.

But Justin Timberlake assured us that despite the shock, everyone was still alive, breathing and having fun.


Also, can we just say that Sara Bareilles’ BTS tweets were on point throughout the entire night? Here are just a few:
